With this new loan she requested, she will invest in the growing of mushrooms in her compound. She is positive toward the success of this business because she has attended training where she was drilled on the preservation and production of mushrooms, and she has a good site. With this activity, the community will have mushrooms all year round for consumption, which will provide their bodies with calcium.
With the profit from this loan, she will save some for future expansion, pay for her children's education and provide her family with three square meals a day. She prefers GHAPE loans because of the low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals.
